The FM editor for GenMDM M4L Tools has been updated to include TFI import and TFI folder import. A TFI file is an FM instrument file from TFM Music Maker. Each TFI file is a single FM instrument. The "TFI" button imports a single TFI file.
The "TFI F" button imports up to 128 instruments from a folder containing 128 or less TFI files - e.g. a SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive instrument settings dump. These instruments are imported into the patch instrument menu. See below for usage examples!
Download all SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive TFI instruments with friendly names here: http://little-scale.com/GENMDM/TFI_SEGA_INSTRUMENTS/TFI_WITH_FRIENDLY_NAMES.zip . Many thanks to Chipmusic.org user Robugaa for importing and converting these files from the .OPM files.
